If you're using that site to upload your screenshots you probably already noticed that your pictures are now held hostage by them unless you pay $400/year.
Good way to kill your business to go from free to $400 without warning. I wonder how many people will jump ship? I know I am.
Link to an article if you're interested to read about it.

I've just been using Google Drive. Comes with my gmail account anyway.

There's an extra step you have to take to direct link to a pic (to embed in a forum), but not really a big deal.

Thanks for the info. I found a site called imgur. Much the same as photobucket but seems a little easier to use.
Test using imgur.
Just flight Arrow III over Atlin Lake in Northern BC.
FSW water textures, note particularly the reflections along the shore.
For some reason the sky looks washed out in the screenshot, it looks a hell of alot better in the sim.
